  • Open Streets MPLS: University of Minnesota + Motley: Back again for 2018, Minneapolis residents will have the opportunity to explore and enjoy their neighborhood streets without the presence of motorized traffic at Open Streets University of Minnesota! Open Streets is a free event bringing together community groups and local businesses to temporarily close streets in and around the University of Minnesota campus to car traffic, opening it up for people walking, biking, rolling, and playing. More than a street festival, Open Streets Minneapolis brings together local businesses, families, and neighbors to bike, walk, socialize, play, enjoy art and live performances, and shop in their communities in a car-free environment.
